Microsoft Surface sales sink, shares dip

Microsoft Corp slightly missed Wall Street's average revenue estimate for the latest quarter on Thursday, as sales of its Surface tablets and laptops slumped in the face of revamped competition in the personal computer market. Shares of the world's largest software company fell 0.6 percent to $67.85 in trading after the bell.


Under Chief Executive Satya Nadella, who took the helm in 2014, Microsoft has sharpened its focus on the fast-growing cloud computing unit to counter a prolonged slowdown in the PC market, which has weighed on demand for its Windows software. That transition remained on track, with cloud margins improving and the company's annual commercial cloud revenue run rate - a bespoke metric closely watched by analysts - reaching $15.2 billion, a 50 percent year-on-year improvement. It marks good progress towards its goal of pushing the figure to $20 billion by 2020.
